credit. according to a report in the "washington post," president obama's economic advisors aand outside experts say the nation's much celebrated housing rebound is leaving too many people hyped, including young people looking to buy their first homes and individuals with credit records that were weakened by the recession. in response, administration officials say they are working to get banks to lend to a wider range of borrowers by taking advantage of taxpayer backed programs, including those offered by the federal housing administration that insure home loans against default. wait a minute. this is the exact tactic that caused the housing bubble and the housing market to crash years ago. is washington ever going to learn from its past mistakes? just another sign that the administration has no idea what they're doing. joining me with reaction, the founder of campens company and ceo of the bab group, real estate analyze, dani babb. the community reinvestment act, wasn't that the government started under jimmy carter, doubled down by bill clinton and increased under clinton that forced b
'll hear, don, is president obama call for congress in washington, d.c. to do what legislators in colorado have done, which is colorado, the president will say is a frontier state, a state that has a history and respect for gun ownership, but they did take some measures to add restrictions on gun ownership including universal background checks, expanding them and a ban on high sxaft magazine, i believe over 15 rounds. so president obama will say that congress and washington, d.c. should do what colorado has done. of course, they're very different. the legislature in colorado is democratic. where as in washington, d.c. this is obviously the house is republican and there are some questions about whether or not this gun control legislation will be able to get through the senate, because not every democrat is on board and certainly some republicans are not as well. so that's basically his pitch today. >> okay, so that's a political battle here. let's go to the front lines, so to speak. you spent time with agents on the front lines of the nation's battle with gunle hav le havgun. tell us what y

debate on gun reform, president obama is looking for support outside of washington d.c. yesterday at a police academy not far from the site of last year's theater shooting in colorado, the president focused on universal background checks saying his goal is not to take firearms away from their owners. >> the opponents of some of these common sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what's being proposed and nothing to do with the facts. but feeds into the suspicion about government. if there are any folks who are out there right now who are gun owners and you've been hearing that someone has taken away your guns, get the facts. we're not proposing gun registration system. we're proposing background checks for criminals. >> one of the most fascinating parts of the speech was when he talked about michelle saying if i lived in a rural area and i lived on a farm, i would want a gun in my house. he was talking about this is not about keeping guns away from people. michelle was talking to the president. the president by extension understan

far. according to the "wall street journal," the obama administration has decided to turn down the volume. white house correspondent dan lothian live from washington on that part of the story for us this morning. dan, this report reveals that the administration has a game plan for showing military force, but it also says the white house is now dialing back. why? >> reporter: well, you're right. i mean, the report talks about sort of this playbook, if you will, that has specific steps that was signed off on by the administration. essentially, the u.s. flexing its muscles to try to turn down the temperature, not only in north korea but also in the region there. but this report pointing out that the steps that the u.s. has taken may have been more provocative, may have pushed and provoked this new leader, kim jong-un, more than intended, so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind that the u.s. presence has been increasing in the region in recent weeks starting back on march 8th when the u.s. flew b-52s as part of what was described as a routine mission. then about 2 1
-un, would be san diego, washington, d.c., hawaii, and austin. >> i'm confident president obama is taking a stand. he's our president. i'm confident that the american people will rally behind him. this is a point of unification. this is a defining point in america's history. people need to understand what the north korean threat is. it's perhaps the fifth largest force in the world. they have chemical, nuclear, biological, and nerve weapons. in the event of an attack on seoul, hundreds of thousands of people would die very, very quickly. we have moved missile systems to guam, the most important american base in the pacific. and so the white house is now looking at what they need to be doing, perhaps they've calculated or miscalculated in the past. but there needs to be an understanding on fox and every news network and every newspaper that this is an adversary, that these people want to kill americans. now, some would say, well, this is about money. this is about foreign aid. this is about propping them up. this is about giving them food and fuel. it may be in the end. but the united stat

in a show of military might. dan lothian is live from washington. we're hearing this headline, dan, but at the same time we're also learning from the obama administration they have this so-called playbook for north korea. >> that's right. that was first reported by the "wall street journal" now independently confirmed by cnn that there was this playbook whereby the north korea did one thing, then the u.s. would react in a certain way. now there's this concern though, according to one official that perhaps they may have pushed north korea's leader too far. so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind over the last several weeks the u.s. really has been beefing up its presence in the region. twice last month the u.s. said b-52 bombers that fly over south korea as part of what we are told is a routine mission. there were navy ships sent to the region and then just yesterday, of course, we find out that this missile defense system will be sent to guam. a lot of concern because many u.s. officials really don't know kim jong-un. they believe that he is unpredictable. perhaps c
